Hello-- I am hoping someone can help me with a Windows Mail issue. Everytime I go to close the application by clicking the red x in the upper right hand corner the application hangs and will not close. The only way I can get Windows Mail to close is by killing the process in the task manager. I have included the error message. Thanks in advance for your time and help.

Windows Mail is no longer supported by Microsoft.
I recommend uninstalling it and installing its replacement, Windows Live Mail:
Unfortunately Windows Mail has been pretty much abandoned by MS since
about July 2006. Windows Mail has some corruption issues which will
never be fixed.
There is a rather laborious way of resetting Windows Mail but i'm not sure how to do it so wouldn't like to coach you on that .
Even if you manage to fix the problem for now, it will probably come back later. Frankly, you'd be much better off simply upgrading to Windows Live Mail:


If life is not an option then why are we not given the option in the first place !
